About Melissa Lester Olson

True healing, as opposed to simply coping, requires more than talk.  Healing requires connection.  And the processing (once and for all) of incompletely processed sources of distress in our lives. 

By combining talk therapy with somatic and neurological therapies that resolve trauma once and for all, relief is possible.  State of the art therapy has evolved over the last 20 years to combine insight-oriented talk therapy with somatic work and trauma resolution methods that engage the body and the mind.  With these transformative approaches - Meditation, EFT Tapping, Progressive Counting, Somatic focusing - it is possible to finally heal, make peace with your Self and live a meaningful life.

Women have always faced unique internal and external obstacles along their path to healing and wholeness.  I am committed to the emotional, psychological and spiritual well-being of women of all sizes and shapes, races and religions, sexual orientations, gender identifications, social standings and life experiences. 

Please review my website (melissalesterolson.com), including my Appointments page.  There you will find detailed answers to most of your initial questions (fees, scheduling, superbills, cancellation policy).  If this feels like a good fit for you, please email me at [email protected] to schedule a 20 minute consultation.  I look forward to connecting with you.

Warm regards, 

Melissa
